“People better than property”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Its a nice property but needs immediate upgrade. But the staff was very warm. Would like to specially mention Chef Abhay Singh who went out of his way to ensure that we had great food.Also Srikanta, the restaurant manager was very warm and helpful.

The big difference with other hotels is the staff: they are very welcoming and efficient here.
I remember a staff who kindly helped me on several occasions at the front desk & guests service.
Food was amazing very wide layout buffet. Rooms were nice & clean well comfortable with all requirements.

In the month of November, 2013 I was to staying for 1 night (21st) & two days at the Hotel Fariyas in Lonavala for some business meeting, along with other colleagues. The stay started from breakfast on 21st morning till afternoon tea on 22nd evening.

Lonavala is in between Pune and Mumbai and is well connected by road and rail. Fariyas is a hotel I am seeing at Lonavala from my college days. It is easily accessible from the Pune-Mumbai express way, as well as, old Pune-Mumbai highway.

The property is little old one, but maintained quite well. The room furniture & bathroom fittings are also bit old. But the whole setting is more homely. Of course, there is scope for better maintenance. Probably there are new rooms as well. The special check-in arranged at the reception lobby for our group was good and quite fast. The checkout process was also smooth.
The food quality was good. The choice for the breakfast was reasonable. The atmosphere in the restaurant was homely. The arrangements made for the business meet and the evening party was also good. The staffs were cooperative and friendly.

Overall it was a good and homely stay. We will consider staying here for a vacation with family.

I stayed at this resort for 2 nights and over all had a good time, but i would not consider it to be a 5 Star property as mentioned on many of the travel websites. Though the rooms and service is of good standard, it lacks those small details that you find in a 5 Star, e.g. when we ordered for service at the pool, we got s reply that we should place our orders in one go and not keep ordering every few mins, i say that if you do not want your staff going up and down with chilled drinks, open a restaurant next to the pool or do not provide a service from your other restaurants. But the management staff is very friendly and accommodating, on our complaint they placed a icebox at the pool filled with drinks so that we do not have to wait. I believe this situation should not have arised in the first place. They charge more than Rs. 10,000/- for a night that includes breakfast and free entry into the water park, but the water park was shut on Monday due to maintenance, i believe there should have been a discount in room prices if all your services are not available. Definitely paying a premium to stay in this property again.

We had planned a group outing and were looking for an option around Lonavala for 1 night. We were recommended Fariyas by a couple of colleagues and ended up reserving 3 Suites for our stay. The reservation process over the phone was easy and the customer representative was very helpful and prompt to respond.

The resort is located on the Old Pune highway close to Della Adventures. As we wanted to try out some adventure sports in the evening, we didn't get much time to spend at Fariyas except for lunch, dinner and breakfast the next day.

The Suites weren't so spacious and we thought it wasn't value for money as we checked in. View from balcony of the room was good. The staff, food and the hospitality was exceptional.

There is an indoor swimming pool with Wild Waters water park with easy to thriller rides - for kids and adults alike. The property is spread out with indoor restaurants for those who would like to go for a la carte. The bar is named Tavern and the seating arrangement is nice and cosy with sofas and bar tables unlike a usual bar setup.

Overall, a good place to visit for couples and families if you can splurge.

We are in Mumbai and were looking for a family gateaway nearby for 2 nights. We were looking at few options in Alibaug but then came across Fariyas in Lonavala. 3 hrs drive from the city and we were there for our first stay on 14th March. The expereince has been so rewarding that we're sure to come back again.

It is nicely perched on a hilltop offering good view of the surrounding mountains and the hills.
We travelled at the onset of summer but i'm sure it will be damn good in monsoon and winter.

While staff, food and service is comparable with other 4 to 5 stars the place stands out for options it has for fun with the family..
-there is a dedicated kids room with vidoe consoles and othe games
- the swimming pool is indoor..no worryin about the Summer Sun
- The wild waters is a water park with easy to thriller rides - for kids and adults alike

and then the Management keeps coming with options to enhance the experience for the guest.
On my Saturday night they had arranged a Quality DJ night with 2 complimentary drinks per guest.I Learnt next evening they had 'Live Ghazals' - but unfortunately i had only planned for 2 nights.

i would recommend this to anyone in Mumbai/Pune for a great timeout for Family and couples alike.

Just a note, the access to the resort is rather a steep slope (you're going uphill) so buckle up if you're driving in. :-)
